An excellent story of her journey to uncover family secrets.

I was enthralled with her quest. Desperately sorry for her mother’s journey too. A total conundrum about what is appropriate regarding telling a child about their parentage. And how essential it is to tread carefully with DNA results.

Sadly, not very interesting.

I usually love this author's books - no one can deny that she can write very well. However this story is just terribly boring. The characters are not interesting. They all go on about how much they all love each other but YAWN .....

Not really an Extraordinary Story.

This book might be fascinating for someone living in the UK but for people who live elsewhere it is actually pretty boring. The people and shows he talks about are not familiar to us and he doesn't really have a terribly interesting life.

Heaps of promise .....

I really thought I would love this book and there were times when I was really intrigued by her character - but oh dear - there was so much repetition, over-detailed description, and unnecessary violence. Sadly, Eva became a boring character. With tighter editing, I'm sure readers would find this book much more interesting. By the way, the narrator's "Australian" accent and her "Polish" countess accent were hard to listen to! Otherwise her narration was enjoyable. For me this was a story with great promise, excellent moments, but sadly, in the end, disappointing.

Noisy and Frustrating

Unfortunately, if I hadn't read the books first, I would have had great difficulty in following these stories. Some of it is extremely loud and noisy. Basically, just a most disappointing experience.

Just as relevant today as it was when it was writt

Brilliant all round. Excellent writing, acting and presentation. Very much relevant in today's political world.

Excellent story and narration

A great story - terrible sadness, moments of joy, amazing twists and tragedy. Beautifully written. The narrator was able to bring the characters to life in a most effective way.

BORING People

Even my favourite narrator was unable to make this story interesting. I kept listening though, with growing impatience - here are two people who apparently are soul mates, yet constantly make the wrong decisions. And such boring decisions! I could not get involved with their characters at all and ended up not caring what happened to them. Even the narrator's voice for Connell was a monotone. The only thing this book was good for was for inducing sleep.

Complicated!

My favourite narrator was absolutely brilliant in this story - she had many different characters and it was essential for her to make these characters easily distinguishable as the story is soooooo complicated. Thankfully she made it all understandable and the plot unravelled satisfyingly. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing.

Engrossing!

Excellent story - characters well developed and plausible. Narrator is outstanding. Enough twists and turns to make the whole story most satisfying.
